Many of the concerts were great personal and artistic successes for the Norwegian composer, and especially so the 1947 concert in Paris. Here Tveitt premiered his ''Piano Sonatas nos 1 and 29'', some of his adaptations of Hardanger Folk-Songs and also the Fourth Concerto for Piano and Orchestra - ''Aurora Borealis''.

According to the rules published by Parker Brothers, credit is given to Ammiel F. Decker for the rules in 1933. The fifth suit of "Greens" was called "Blätter", or leafs. In 1937 and 1938, Waddington's of London created a fifth suit of more detailed crowns also called "Royals," which respectively featured light blue and dark green crowns. In the same year there were three American decks that included a green "Eagle" as a fifth suit in similar Bridge decks of playing cards. The deck published by United States Playing Card Company used the Eagle in a medium green and the pips in the corners were inside green circles. The second deck was by Russell Playing Cards (owned by the United States Playing Card Company) used the same Eagle but in a darker shade and the pips in the corners were devoid of the circle. The third deck was by Arrco in 1938 and used an Eagle as well. At least five other bridge books were subsequently published to support playing Bridge with rules for this fifth suit, including one by Arrco in 1938. It is more than likely the book that Arrco published was for their own deck. Parker Brothers created a fifth-suit Bridge deck in 1938 called "Castle Bridge", in which the fifth suit of Castles looked like a Rook (Rook (chess)) chess piece and was colored green. The rules are still available from the Hasbro website. Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna
